"Bridgeport is just the ideal balance of land, power, water and a great community for the workforce", said Brenda Standridge, Google's Alabama project manager.

Google officials told us most the work done at the data center here will serve the southeast region of the united states. "Therefore we ask that Project Maven be cancelled, and that Google draft, publicize and enforce a clear policy stating that neither Google nor its contractors will ever build warfare technology".

The data center project is expected to have a massive economic impact on the area and add a new dimension to Jackson County's economy, which today has a heavy concentration of manufacturers producing items ranging from carpets to auto parts.

Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey speaks at the groundbreaking for Google's $600 million data center in Jackson County.

Data process centers handle as many as 100 billion searches for Google every month and 500 hours of video uploads to YouTube every minute.

"Hopefully, it will help with jobs", said Jackson County Schools Superintendent Kevin Dukes.

Work already has been going on for weeks at the location, which includes the site of the old Widows Creek power plant.

"Google could have chosen any place in the world, but they choose Bridgeport in Jackson County in the Tennessee Valley in Alabama", said U.S. Rep. Mo Brooks, R-Ala. Schools $100,000 to boost their stem programs. The company said the center will create between 75 and 100 highly technical jobs, with potential for growth in the future.
